Dinosaur Maths!

Dinosaur Maths! 

Our new topic for Spring is DINOSAURS and what better way to kick off our learning in maths than with a bucket full of dinosaurs maths challenge! We had to roll the dice and correctly match the quantity and colour of dinosaurs with the numbers and colours on the dice... The winner was the person who had the most dinosaurs in their bucket after two minutes! Our top score was 17 dinosaurs collected in 2 minutes!

Gruffalo Crumble

Gruffalo Crumble!

We couldn't have a Gruffalo week without making Gruffalo crumble so Reception found a recipe and set to work! We chopped, mixed, sprinkled and stirred and then after what seemed like ages and ages in the oven we had a delicious Gruffalo Crumble! The smells of apples, cinnamon and sugar filled the air as we happily munched on big bowls of delicious crumble with custard!

The Gruffalo!

The Gruffalo!

Reception have had an amazing week this week which began with a wonderful trip to the theatre in Burnley to watch The Gruffalo Live! The show was hilarious and we all thought that the Gruffalo was hilarious! When we got back to school we used our Gruffalo puppets to retell the story of The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child. We created masks, paintings and pictures in our art area and experimented with a range of materials to get the features of the Gruffalo just right! Stay tuned for our Gruffalo Crumble photos...

Our first week in Reception!
